Intel Nuc 11 Extreme + Geforce Founders Edition?


HI Intel und Community,

passen die Founders Edition von Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060/3060 TI/3070/3070 TI/3080/3080 TI/  in den Intel Nuc 11 Extreme?


Ich möchte nicht die Katze im Sack kaufen grade Aktuell bei den Preisen!


Bitte nur Antworten die das auch selber mit einer der Founders Edition getestet haben. Ich selber will eine Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition in den Intel Nuc 11 Extreme einbauen.

Flashi666, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.

Just to let you know, we only provide support in English language and currently, we are using a translation tool.

In reference to your question and in order for us to provide the most accurate response to it, could you please let us know the specific/complete model of the Intel® 11 Extreme?

If it is possible, please attach the SSU report so we can verify further details about the Intel® NUC:

Any questions, please let me know.

Ich möchte doch nur Wissen was ich für eine Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060/3060 TI/3070/3070 TI/3080/3080 TI/ Einbauen kann. 


Eure Liste auf für Grafikkarten ist sehr klein die von Intel Validated sind.  


I just want to know what I can install for an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060/3060 TI/3070/3070 TI/3080/3080 TI/.


Your list on for graphics cards that are validated by Intel is very small.

Flashi666, Thank you very much for sharing those aspects.


"Your list on for graphics cards that are validated by Intel is very small.", The reason for that is because it is almost impossible to test all the products available on the market. It is important to mention, also, that the fact that some products are not showing in that list, does not necessarily mean that they are not compatible with the Intel® NUC, is just that Intel® did not have the chance to test them and validate them yet.


Since we now have the specific model of the Intel® NUC, we will be more than glad to do further research on this topic in order to check and try to confirm, if the products that you listed are fully compatible with the Intel® NUC. As soon as I get any updates I will post all the details on this thread.

Hello Flashi666, I just received an update on this matter.

As you can confirm in the link below under "PCI Express Configurations" 12" is the max card length. 12 inches is equivalent to 304.8 millimeters:

Regarding the compatibility of the video cards, only the products listed in our Intel® Compatibility Tool are the cards that we can confirm as fully compatible with the Intel® NUC 11 Extreme Kit - NUC11BTMi9:

Thanks for that. I know the length now. How about height and width? Is there any official information about this?

Hi Flashi,
I have a Nvidia RTX3080 founder’s edition installed in my NUC11BTMI9.
It just fits. Power cables need to be pushed over to the inside of the card, but just doable to close the nuc top.
It runs really nice.

Danke @Amphi für die Positive Info.


Ich habe 3 Grafikarten. Eine von den könnte es werden. Die zwei 3070 Varianten liegen vom Preiss noch im Rahmen aber ich kaufe die dann vielleicht erst in 1 - 2 Monaten und ich hoffe mal das der Preiss nicht höher wird. Sonst wird es die 3060 werden von Asus. 


1 x ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 3060 V2 OC, DUAL-RTX3060-O12G-V2, 12GB GDDR6, HDMI, 3x DP 

Länge: ‎20 cm,  Breite: 12,3 cm, Höhe: 3,8 cm (2-Slots)


2x NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition

Länge: 24,5 cm, Breite : 11,0 cm

Bei der habe ich keine Höhen Angabe gefunden aber die sollte passen da die nur 2-Slots Belegt.


3x GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3070 Eagle OC 8G (Rev. 2.0) (LHR), 8GB GDDR6, 2x HDMI, 2x DP

Länge: 28,2, Breite: 11,5 cm, Höhe: 4,1 cm (2-Slots)

Bei der GIGABYTE bin ich mir nicht sicher ob die Passt da die Höhe von 4,1 cm sind. Ich habe mal gelesen das die Maximal höhe 3,9 cm sind. Keine Ahnung wo ich das gelesen habe.


Wegen den Abmessungen habe ich mal ein Bild mit angehängt da das viele verwechseln. Ist mir aufgefallen wenn man bei einigen Shops so kuckt.


Thank you@amphi für die Positive Info.


I have 3 types of graphics. it could be one of them. the two 3070 variants are still in the frame of the price but I buy them then maybe only in 1 - 2 months and I hope that the price will not be higher. otherwise it will be the 3060 from asus.


1 x asus dual geforce rtx 3060 v2 oc, dual-rtx3060-o12g-v2, 12gb gddr6, hdmi, 3x dp

length: 20 cm, width: 12.3 cm, height: 3.8 cm (2-slots)


2x nvidia geforce rtx 3070 founders edition

length: 24,5 cm, width : 11,0 cm

I did not find any height information but it should fit because it only occupies 2 slots.


3x gigabyte geforce rtx 3070 eagle oc 8g (rev. 2.0) (lhr), 8gb gddr6, 2x hdmi, 2x dp

length: 28.2, width: 11.5 cm, height: 4.1 cm (2-slots)

With the GIGABYTE, I'm not sure if it fits because the height is 4.1 cm. I once read that the maximum height is 3.9 cm. I have no idea where I read that.


because of the dimensions I have attached a picture with because many confuse that. I noticed when you look at some shops like that.


Flashi666, You are very welcome, thank you very much for letting us know those details.

"How about height and width? ", Yes, in the TPS (Technical Product Specification) of the Intel® NUC it states:

  • Maximum Length: 300 mm
  • Maximum Width: 2-Slots
  • Maximum Height: 131 mm
  • Maximum Power Consumption (Card): 150W (each PCIe 6+2/8pin) +75W (PCIe slot)
  • Maximum Power Consumption (System): 650W

As you can confirm here, page 43:

Wurde mal Nvidia RTX3080 TI founder’s edition in den NUC11BTMI9 getestet? Die braucht ja Maximal 350W. Hat das Netzteil mit der Nvidia RTX3080 TI founder’s edition Probleme vom NUC11BTMI9?


Durch @Amphi weiss ich ja das die Nvidia RTX3080 founder’s edition im NUC11BTMI9 läuft und das der verbrauch Maximal 320W sind.


Has the Nvidia RTX3080 TI founder's edition ever been tested in the NUC11BTMI9? It needs a maximum of 350W. Does the power supply have problems with the Nvidia RTX3080 TI founder's edition from the NUC11BTMI9?


From @Amphi I know that the Nvidia RTX3080 founder's edition runs in the NUC11BTMI9 and that the maximum consumption is 320W.

I also would like to know if anyone has an RTX3080TI in their NUC.
